Hans

A cheerful, honest Bavarian with a small heart. Manager of an IT-company. Leader of a re-enactment group called The Bavarian Knights. Loves life and his family. Has a tendency to work himself in trouble but always seems to be able to stumble his way out of it. Always has a smile on his face.

The authentic Bavarian

Two things signed Hans when he was a child. He loved history, something he learned from his grandfather, and he was bullied for his weight. As an adolescent he was very hard on himself, not allowing any excessive food or drink. This strict life backfired in college when Hans finally let go and stopped being ashamed. He studied Information Technology and became a true bonne vivant. Living and enjoying life with every fiber of his soul and body, Hans evolved from a closed boy to a happy man, loved by many. A new hobby helped with this. Because of his interest in history, he joined the re-enactment group The Munich Knights and became one of the key people in this organization. Nothing would bring him such peace of mind, as stepping into his re-enactment clothes. In his twenties, he married and started a family, but when both his overweight father and grandfather died, he realized he had to keep a balance in life, both for himself and his family, his greatest treasure. He started doing sports and took care of his diet. Nevertheless, Hans remained the same cheerful man everyone knows. A moment spent with them is never a moment lost.

Hates the other gods, loves humans. Acknowledges his father as the king of the gods but knows that in reality, the human race only kneels for one god: pleasure.

The God of pleasure

Born as the son of Zeus and his mistress, he was a bit of a maverick in the god family. Hera, Zeus wife, tried to kill him on multiple, occasions and he spent his childhood in hiding… until he discovered the magical drink called wine. He decided to travel the world, spreading his new found knowledge. He began to see himself as the father of alcohol and drinking. The one who brought happiness and feasts in the dark world his own father ruled. Years passed and Dionysus took up his place in the god pantheon. When people began to forget the old gods, they sobbed and worried about their lost glory. Dionysus however, saw it differently. He too was a forgotten god, but by drinking alcohol and partying the people still remembered and worshipped Dionysus. Nonetheless, he still visits his father and the other gods who see him as an outsider, smartly weaving them around his finger and acting as a liaison with the outside world. He is a god wandering the world, with a love for humans, encouraging alcohol, feasting and the joys of life.

Ernst

75 years old and retired. Married with the second love of his life. Is still passionate about the first love of his life: music and playing the trumpet. He’s cheeky and enthusiastic and can talk for hours about history, music, and life. Skinny, thinned out white hair, a well-groomed moustache. He loves his wife, children, and grandchildren but fears his illness and leaving behind his loved ones.

The Trumpeter

Born in a family of 11, Ernst grew up in a very active and close family. A simple life, but with strong values. His father was an amateur trumpeter and Ernst inherited the love for music. As a trumpeter, he began a band mixing a traditional Bavarian sound with up-tempo jazz. In the sixties, at the Nationaltheater in Munich, he met the love of his life, with which he would build the biggest passion of his life: his family. Claudia wrote children's books and together they created a family full of creativity and four daughters who in turn gave Ernst and Claudia many grandchildren. Unfortunately, in his sixties, Erns got diagnosed with cancer. He defeated it twice but at age 74, the doctors gave him the hard news: the cancer had returned and had spread through his body. It was a hard nut to crack but the love of the couple and the family was stronger than the disease. The two decided to live the time they still had together in the same way they had lived their life: with joy, a love for creativity and for each other.
